       Dems blew their chance for 2018 gains in tax fight

Nancy Pelosi stood from 10am into the evening without a break, calling for legislation to protect undocumented immigrants brought into the United States as children.

Pelosi broke a House record for the longest speech given since 1909 when she spoke on the floor for eight hours straight.

"I have had the privilege of reading the testimony from Dreamers, I still have more", she said, receiving applause in the chamber. She said, "I thank all of you".

She also quoted from the Bible and Pope Francis, while Democrats took turns sitting behind her in support.

House Speaker Ryan, a Wisconsin Republican, praised the Democratic leader's stamina after she staged an eight-hour talk-a-thon on the House floor Wednesday to protest congressional inaction on legislation to protect immigrants brought to the children.

"Just from the reporting that we're hearing, many of those (priorities) have been addressed", he said. All of these archetypes are among the many that lawmakers employ to describe Americans, but these people were Dreamers-the people that so many people want to divorce from the national debate and string along for an indeterminate amount of time.

And she kept speaking.

Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) was outspoken past year in his criticism of House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA). Something will have to give if Ryan is going to get the bill across the finish line. However, Pelosi, in a statement, did not signal how much of her caucus would vote against the deal.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) has set a record for the longest continuous speech in House history, according to the House Historian's Office.

"We have to be strong as a country ... to respect the aspirations of people who are our future", Pelosi said on the House floor. But Ryan, who controls the House floor, hasn't allowed for a vote on the Dream Act or other bipartisan bills to help Dreamers.

She called on House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., to guarantee a vote on DREAMer legislation, as Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., did in the Senate. "Congress again will work its will".

Pelosi, who is 77, managed to do the whole thing in 4-inch heels, an observation popularly noted on Twitter when users started sharing videos of the California Democrat under the hashtag #GoNancyGo.
